Comments on Professor Trow's Paper Entitled "Methodological Problems in the Evaluation of Innovation."
The starting point for innovation in higher education must include assessment, evaluation, and description of the present situation. A national study of what constitutes the core values of American academic life today should be undertaken. In the evaluation of innovation, it is important to broaden the unit being studied to include legislators and taxpayers, as well as students, faculty and administrators. Innovations proposed must be considered in light of their impact on all participants. The quality of the educational experience rather than the amount of specific information transmitted should be evaluated. Related documents are EA 002 536 and EA 002 551. (MLF)
